Since January 1 over 700 attorneys have volunteered for new matters for our nonprofit clients! Click here for a list of individuals who have volunteered so far this year.

To: William Cloherty, Elavon
From: Georgia CASA

William was always accessible, responsive, and very patient (he never made us feel that we were asking a “dumb” question) I was so grateful for his time and expertise, as he certainly made this process a lot easier. Most significantly, because of his involvement, our new affiliation agreements reflect the evolving nature of Georgia CASA’s relationship with the affiliates, emphasize growth and capacity, and strengthen our mutual ability to further CASA advocacy across Georgia.

To: Ryan Newbrough, Seyfarth Shaw

Thank you for the time and expertise you devoted to review of our organization’s Participant Release and Waiver of Liability. Your feedback and insights helped close important gaps not captured in the original version of the release and pushed our thinking on ways to tailor the document for usage across multiple service lines. We so appreciate your service to GLISI on this matter and are grateful for your firm’s commitment to supporting nonprofit organizations!

To: Dan Brown
From: One 2 One Educational Support

Dan Brown was so perfectly meticulous with his work on our Financial Policies and Procedures. We work with a Federal program, where the fiscal details must be carefully adressed. Pro Bono paired us with Dan which resulted in so much more than we expected. Having financial policies in place will aid our growth!

To: Ashna Zaheer, The Coca-Cola Company
From: Raising Expectations

We truly enjoyed working with Ashna. Thank you all so much for your support and for connecting us to such a talented and generous attorney.

To: Jeremy Hilsman, Georgia Pacific
From: Georgia Innocence Project

We greatly appreciate all your advice and guidance and your very generous offer to keep working with us on our new lease should we start over (despite the massive amount of time you put into this!). I know this space isn’t close to perfect, but it is a huge improvement for us and will be a major morale booster for several staff. And maybe by the time the lease is up, we’ll be in a position to be our own landlords.
